Arret of n Piisrltlve From nn In

John Alden MacKinnon son of a well
known New York banker and broker and
a fugitive from the Morris Plains X J
Asylum for the Insane Is under arrest
at the First precinct police station He
was taken into custody by Detectives
Boyd and Parham at the corner of Tenth
and H Streets northwest yesterday morn
ing and will be held awaiting advices
from the asylum authorities They hae
been notified of the arrest and It Is ex
pected two attendants will arrive this
morning to take charge of the fugitive
MacKinnon sals he may petition the
Supreme Court of the District for a writ
of habeas corpus to prevent his surren
der to the arvlum officers He says he
came to this eit as a disciple of Christ
to spread religious truths
MacKinnon escaped from the Morris
Plains Asylum Friday He headed for
Philadelphia and there being without
funds telegrnphcd his father for money
In reply he received a check for a sub
stantial amount enclosed In a letter
pleading with him to return to the asy
lum and to cease worrying his relatives
and friends instead of doing as advised
MacKinnon came to Washington and se
cured quarters at Tenth and E Streets
where he was located jesterday Jle ar
rived Sunday morning and shortly after
ward the pollco were requested to ap
prehend him MacKinnon led Detectives
lloyd and Parham a merry chase before
they took him Into custody
When arretted MacKinnon told the po
lice that It was necessary for him to see
the President in order to spread the
real truth as the supreme being had
taught It
AlacKInnon Is a map of education well
dressed and of quie demeanor His
conversation would ordinarily impress
Tine because of the earnestness of the
man At Xo 1 station last night he was
In a good humor and talked freely In
an3wer to a number of eiucstions he
said
I am here to speak the truth nothing
else My home is In New York City 1
was born In Cleveland Ohio I am thirty-six
years old and unmarried 1 left
the usylum for several reasons First
because I was not Insane therefore had
no business there Second I was tired
of close confinement and was not per
mitted to communicate properly with my
friends nnd attorney through whom 1
wished to obtain my release from the
asylum Third I believe it my duty to
teach truths which I have been taught
by a higher power
When I reached vour citv mv first ac-
tlon was to write the Chief of Police so
II ai j mignt nolu a meeting on the public
streets without danger of molestation 1
ricclved no reply 1 then planned to con
duct a meeting but had not terminated
arrangements when arrested It was my
Intention to see the President of course
because from him If at all should come
the first recognition of the doctrine I pro
claim Tor several years I have made a
study of conditions of the human race
Such contemplation shows woeful igno
rance sinful almost desperate to a stu
dent of the truth
It is true the Christian churches teach
faith fortitude and unselfishness for the
betterment of the human race but they
fall short of the grasp 1 have secured on
the conditions and necessities of the uni
verse My teachings go beyond them
MacKinnon voluntarily entered the
Morris Plains Asjlum at the advice of
his relatives and friends who considered
him a religious maniac Immediately af
ter his arrival here he addressed a letter
to the superintendent of the Morris Plains
Asjlum In which he staled that he was
observing All Fools

Threatening ovcrlnnging clouds have
no deterring effect on Bcnnlng patrons
and yesterday the usual large crowd was
In attendance to see a good card run
off The sport was Interesting through
out the starts prompt and the several
events hotly contested In the first race
particularly the finish was so close that
from the grandstand It was Impossible
to tell which horse had won until the
numbers were hung up placing Elolm
first and Prosit second Mnny thought
Prosit should have had the decision The
uncertainties of racing were never better
illustrated than In that event and dem
onstrated how little even ovvn TS and
trainers themselves know about the run
ning finalities of their horses
Prosit was 100 to 1 In the betting with
as good as 10 to 1 to show and ran prac
tically unbacked by his stable connec
tions and the public excepting the pik
ers who go after long shots She got off
absolutely- last and with an even break
could not have lost As it was she was
only beaten bj an ejelash
The fifth race furnished another sur
prise to the talent as Scorpio from the
Goughacres stable and ridden bj an ap
prentice won in a romp with as god
as 25 to 1 ngainst him Altogether It
was a bid day for the favorites as only
tvo from the A II
i D II Morris stable and Robert Wad
dell rewarded their backers These two
were at such short odds that the
plungers could afford to back them There
were tw entj tiv e books In line and there
was business enough for as many more
The game is so good for the pencilers that
several more will weigh in tomorrow It
is coming their way sure and are
getting back at the talent for the drub
bing got last fall
The entries for the Second Spring Hun
ters Steeplechase for qualified hunters
four years old and upwanl to be run un
der the rules of the National Hunt and
Steeplechase Association have been an
nounced bv the Club The event
brings out us large and as good a field
of hunters as was ever seen at any track
In the countrj The field will probably
be the largest that ever faced a starter
in a race of this kind and among the
horses will be seen steeplechasers
well known to Washingtonlans They
Include such as Sackett Self Protection
Last Cord Quicksilver Emory Hacklctt
King Olaf Capt Connover and several
others equally well known This Is one
of tne features of the Benning spring
meeting for In addition to the subscrip
tions of IS each all to go to the winner
the Washington Jockey Club has added
a purse of JUKI and a piece of plate of the
value of J100 It ought to be worth ten
times the price of the admission to see
the race and lovers of this kind of sport
rarely have such an oppcrtunltj pre
senteel to them
The card for todaj Is an excellent one
and as the fields an all large exciting
contests should be the result The fea
tures are the steeplechase at about two

O T Taylor of 1213 Hartford Street
llrookland has written Commissioner
Jlacfarland tvlth reference to the school
site In BrooHand He states that he
learns from the papers that a commit
tee of the BrootUnd Citizens Association
has pret enteel their -views to the Com
missioners also some flsures with refer
ence to the number of colored families
to be served by the school if it Is placed
in Brookland proper and not in one of
the outlying sub divisions
Mr Taylor states that at the outset he
would like to know why if the site on
the -Bunker Hill Road is thought to be
so desirable to the members of the Citi
zens Association they abandoned it some
years aeo and came down Into the town
of Brookland and had a school house
built there at a cost of about 60000
It will be recalleel that the Citizens As
sociation credited South Brookland with
fourteen families Jlr Taylor gives the
names of eleven families who live he
says within the limits of the territory
named by the committee as beins Brook
land He says that all but two of these
families live within a stones throw of
one another and that there are six more
families living just outside of the lines
laid down by the committee
3Ir Taylor states that he made a trip
out to the site on the Bunker Hill Road
last Sunday nad he informs the Com
missioner that It is too Ions a walk for
children to take in going to and from
school He closes his letter by urging
the Commissioner to locate the new col
ored school in Brookland as was intend
ed by the law ejf Congress
John Hughes jr contractor for the
erection of the chemical engine house at
the corner of Fortieth and XenU Streets
northwest has requested of the Commis
sioners that pajment be made under the
contract 3P being retained until the wa
ter table course on the rear of the build
ing Is completed Jlr Hughes states that
he desires this action to be taken to en
able him to settle with his sub-contractors
In reporting upon the application John
B Brady the Inspector of Building has
Informed the Commissioners that the
building is completed except the water
table course referred to This is yet to
be laid and is delayed temporarily by the
brick makers not having the style of
brick reeiulred In stock Jlr Brady sees
no objection to granting the request pro
vided the matter of placing a watchman
In the building can be arranged He In
forms the Commissioners that in order to

THE WAY IT WAS
TLe Bedfast Man Who Got Up
J
and Went to Business
This is the way it was The man had
been sick with rheumatism and a com
plication of troubles and had been bed
fast all winter He had three of the best
physiciansin attendance but his condition
baffled their skill Then it chanced that
a pamphlet was put into his hands He
read of cures of men and women whose
condition suggested his own and he said
That medicine is Just what I need
Send for a bottle at once
If every sick person would reason as
logically and act as promptly as did this
man there would be many more bedfast
people able to be up and go to business
Every human body is organically alike
The blood is the life of the richest man
as well as the poorest If a kings blood
gets out of order the same conditions fol
Company has also requested permission
to string two wires from the corner of
First Street and Florida Avenue north
west to premises at the northwest corner
of North Capitol and Randolph Streets
C Allen the Electrical Engin
eer In reporting upon the application
has recommended that It be granted Ha
states that the cable pole at the corner
of First Street and riorlda Avenue is ths
nearest one to the subscriber Ho states
that the permit will not authorize tho
stringing of any wires over private prop
erty and that authority exists in tho
recent decision of Justice Barnard to
grant the permit
The Commissioners acting upon the ad
vice of the Major and Superintendent of
Police have accepted the resignation of

low in his body as in any other mans
tf a millionaires blood be impure his
wealth cant preserve him from the skin
eruptions which usually indicate the
bloods impurity And if either king or
millionaire wants to be cured he has to
use the means ope o the poorest person
in the land There is no royal road to
health more than to learning
AM PEOPU ARK AUKE
Since we are all alike flesh and blood
then what cures disease of flesh and
blood in one case should cure it in any
case under similar conditions That was
the argument of the man who was bed
fast and the sequel prov eel it to be sound
and logical
Quite a number of jears ago when I
was a girl at home my father was pros
trated upon a bed of sickness writes
Mrs P M Wheeler of No 2 Ann Place
Bradford Pa He had rheumitism and
a complication of troubles which baffled
the skill of three of our best physicians
All through the winter months he lay
upon his bed suffering severely at times
with rheumatism in his limbs While in
this condition a pamphlet containing a
description of Dr Pierces remedies fell
into his hands I do not remember
whether it was left at the door or came
through the mails but I do remember
of his sitting up in bed and reading it
through and then exclaiming That
medicine is just what I need Send for
a bottle at once JusUhen a neighbor
came along who was going to town we
lived in the five miles from the
nearest drug store ami we sent for a
bottle of Dr Pierces Golden Medical
Discovery We laid aside the doctors
medicines and commenced giving my
father the Golden Medical Discovery
according to directions The first three
days he felt worse as is often the case
After that he commenced to gain His
physician was surprised at the change in
his condition and candidly admitted that
the Golden Medical Discovery was do
ing more for him than he had been able
to do Inless tlian two weeks my father
was np with his clothes on He con
tinued taking the medicine and in 3
short time was well and ever afterward
loudin his praise of Dr Pierces Golden
Medical Discovery as he told of the
wonderful cure it performed in his case
You may publish this if you desire to
do so I have no doubt but that many
will read it who will remember the cir
cumstances perfectly well
Dr Pierces Golden ledicai Discovery
has an unsurpassed record as a blood
purifying medicine Not only does it
cure rheumatism but diseases in general
which have their cause in an impure
condition of the blood such as eczema
scrofula erysipelas boils pimples ul
cers sores etc The cures effected by
Golden Medical Discovery are perfect
and permanent Some medicines drive
the surface symptoms of disease in in
stead of out they cover disease but do
not cure it- Golden Medical Discovery
drives out of the blood the corrupting
poisons and imparities
which cause disease and
it establishes the body in
sound health
A SPRING MEDICINB
Because of its blood pu
rifying power and tonic
qualities Golden Medical
Discovery is an ideal
spring medicine There
is no alcohol in the Dis
covery and it is entirely
free from opiates and nar
cotics It does not stimu
late but imparts real
strength and permanent
vigor
It gives me much
pleasure to testify to the
merits of Dr Pierces
Golden Medical Discov
ery writes Miss Annie
Wells of Fergussons
Wharf Isle of Wight Co
Va I can say honestly
and candidly that it is the
grandest medicine ever
compounded for purifying
ths blood I suffered ter
ribly with rheumatism
and pimples on the skin
and swelling in my knees and feet so
that I could not walk I spent about
twenty dollars paying doctors bills but
received no benefit A jear or two ago
I was reading one of your Memorandum
Books and I decided to try Dr Pierces
Golden Medical Discovery and Favorite
Prescription and am entirely cured
Sometimes a dealer tempted by the
little more profit paid on the sale of less
meritorious medicines will offer the cus
tomer a substitute as being just as good
as the Discovery It is better for him
because it pays better but it is not as
good for jou if you want the medicine
that lias cured others
